Published 1:11 pm Friday, May 11, 2018

Traffic on State Road 97over Sandy Hollow Creek near Davisville in Escambia County will be transitioned to a temporary (acrow) bridge Tuesday, May 15. Motorists may encounter minor delays as workers prepare to switch traffic. Once the transition is complete, crews will begin replacing the 78-year-old structure with a new 12-foot wide bridge with eight-foot shoulders and a concrete barrier railing. The bridge approaches will also be resurfaced. The entire project is anticipated to be complete fall 2018, weather permitting. Drivers are reminded to slow down to the posted 45 MPH speed limit and to use caution when approaching the temporary bridge. A weight restriction is in place on the temporary bridge: Vehicles weighing over 88,000 pounds and cranes will be prohibited.
The new bridge encompasses 11-foot travel lanes, 6-foot shoulders and a solid concrete barrier for more information visit the Florida Department of Transportation District Three on the web at www.nwflroads.com, follow us on Twitter @myfdot_nwfl, or like us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/MyFDOTNWFL.
